Skoda straighten style their cars over and over again, the novelty with novelty. The X Vision concept, presented at the Geneva motor show, is a Prime example of how to develop the design of the brand’s cars in the future.
A typical car show put on 20-inch wheels and hid the door handles in the plane of the doors to create a more flat profile. The interior is from the same Opera – avant-garde fantasies of future car concept seats, a spacious interior and a large screen on the centre console, where most of the controls.
In fact, the concept subcompact crossover similar basis with Karoq, is a concentrate of all development of the VW Group and Skoda in particular in the direction of powertrains. It can run on gasoline, compressed natural gas and electricity. His heart and soul is the familiar 1.5-litre petrol engine in the VW Group, however, instead of TSI, it is pasted on the label G-TEC as the models of Skoda that runs on compressed natural gas (CNG).
When working on the compressed gas power is 130 HP and 200 Nm of torque, which is not particularly impressive, but enough for city driving. The gas is on in two tanks – one under the rear seat, the other is about the rear axle. It is important to mention that the second is activated only when the car needs more power.
There are two electric motors. One is operating as a generator, belt-driven 1.5-litre petrol engine and the other a separate motor with a torque of 70 Nm on the rear axle is paired with a lithium-ion battery. It can be recharged with energy recovery braking.
Depending on the instantaneous objectives, Vision X can be front, rear or all-wheel drive. Maximum torque up to 1000 Nm, which is impressive, given that it is, after all, Skoda. To disperse hundreds took 9.3 seconds, top speed is 200 km/h. General reserve on all possible stocks of fuel and energy is 650 kilometers. Well, if anything, in the trunk there is an electric skateboard.
